For movies, I can live with Audyssey. I have an Emotiva XMC-1 with Dirac Live and I love it. But recently I did install ATMOS speakers and because my XMC-1 is not ATMOS capable I decided to try a Denon X6500H for movies only. After figuring the way, I'm running right now dual processors: Emotiva XMC-1 for music and Denon X6500H for movies. I did run Audyssey and while I like the results for movies, still I didn't like for music. I did run Audyssey from the receiver, not the app. Last month after the app got the update that does not roll off LFE channel at 20Hz, I decided to try the MultiEQ Editor App. To my surprise the results are amazing, to the point that I was able to get very similar results for music with the Denon and the Emotiva. Still Dirac has the edge for music but for movies, Audyssey is a really hard contender after the app update. Just my 2 cents.
Thank you...I’ll have to give Audyssey a try again with the app upgrade once the subs arrive. I used to have a wisdom Audio Sage speaker system in the room (thus the STS sub). I removed it but still use their SC3 system controller for 16 channel Dirac Live calibration because I couldn’t get things to sound good with Audyssey. So basically the SC3 is now a very expensive DL Room Correction tool. The SC3 allows 16 Balanced in and 32 Balanced out of DL calibrated channels. All the Wisdom speakers required bi-amplification, thus the 32 out.
